Sharpe ratio of sum of random variable

Hello All,

I am not able to get the OA.

Let X = Random variable denotes the change in the value of stock of Microsoft.

Find Sharpe Ratio of Z = X+Y, if risk-free return = 1.5%.

Here’s what I did:

Sharpe Ratio = (E(X) + E(Y) - Rf)/ Sqrt (Var (X+Y)) = (0.22 - 0.015)/Sqrt(14.64) = 0.05357. Continue reading

PS: I use yahoo mail.  Continue reading
